It has come to the attention of the club that some unscrupulous dog breeders are advertising pups for sale and indicating that they are members of this club or another Akita Club in Ireland. To clarify the situation anyone seeking to purchase a pup having been told that the seller is a member of this club should confirm this information with the club membership secretary before committing to the purchase.

Please be aware that there is only one club in Ireland for the American Akita and Akita Inu.
